The Bridge. A Poem. With Three Photographs by Walker Evans

Paris: Black Sun Press, 1930. First Edition; one of 50 copies printed on Japan vellum, signed by Crane. Connolly 100. By happy coincidence, Evans and Crane met at the Brooklyn Bridge. It was Crane’s choice to use these three photographs, previously unpublished, with his poem, a modest collaboration at the time, but now so closely associated as to seem nearly inseparable. A fine copy in the original glassine, and in the publisher’s paper-covered slipcase, which has only very minor wear. In a custom quarter-morocco clamshell box. Crane might well have chosen to leap to his death from the iconic bridge, but instead threw himself overboard returning from Cuba just two years later.
